How to set up tracking by link
With the tracking method Link your affiliates can generate unique URLs (referral links) from their account. This referral link can be shared on their website, social media accounts, etc. to promote your store and products. When the link is clicked the visit will be tracked by the app and connected with the affiliate. If the referred visitor places an order, the affiliate receives a commission.
This tracking method is the most commonly used one in affiliate marketing.
💡 By default, this unique URL contains the affiliate ID. To customize the referral link, please read this help article.
